This is the funniest freaking thing I’ve read in a long time. “No chance for Sochi 2014 corruption-Audit Chamber.” “It is practically impossible.” Seriously. That’s what Sergei Stepashin says.
I’m dying here. But it gets better. Want to know why there’s no chance for corruption?
“The Olympics are pretty expensive, this we know,” he said. “But the sports facilities cost about the same as in Europe. We conduct quarterly checks. … It’s practically impossible to simply steal just like that, I give you my honest word.”
“Rises in expenses are linked with infrastructure.”
Because of course, there is no corruption in the construction of infrastructure in Russia. None. The country where it costs about 6 times as much per mile to build roads than in the US.
For its next joke, the Audit Chamber will investigate Gazprom. I can’t wait. I can always use a laugh.
